A Christmas Carol Stave 1: Marley's Ghost

To usher in this holiday season, Warlock Vorobok Reads is releasing 5 extra-special episodes featuring readings from A Christmas Carol! One might not think of A Christmas Carol as a ghost story, but listen carefully, especially to “Stave I: Marley’s Ghost.” Scrooge’s house is richly described in a Gothic atmosphere full of darkness and anxiety. The shuddering realization that Marley wears his moral crimes on his incorporeal body as punishment is something mimicked later in Franz Kafka’s In the Penal Colony.
